THE NEXT BIG THING
The Art of Zen Living has evolved out of necessity and an awakening of people all over the world. It's the collective consciousness waking up and recognising that we are doing it all wrong. Life doesn't have to be so busy, stressful and tiring. Through attending my Zen Yoga classes and hearing about how we approach life through Zen principles, people are seeing that it unlocks spaces of energy blocks, you are able to see things about yourself, your thinking patterns and your mentality that may have worked but don't need to remain any longer. The Art of Zen Living is about drawing a line in the sand and starting with a fresh perspective on life.
We can't change the demanding work schedules and other demands on our time so we use the practices of Zen Living to make the best of what we do have. It's not about making do because there's no other choice. It's going back to basics with a shift in perspective.
Zen Yoga uses traditional hatha poses but brings in Zen meditation (zazen) in a very different way than traditional Indian yoga. Specific to Zen Yoga is Qigong exercise. With it's flowing movements of the body, it is practiced to cultivate balance and the harmony of vital energy in the body. These slower movements in Zen Yoga, Tai Chi and Qigong create new neural pathways in the brain (called neuroplasticity) which help to reduce chronic pain, anxiety and low mood. Read my blog about it here.
Particularly good for beginners, Zen Yoga's slower style will help you to build strength and flexibility both physically and mentally. It doesn't matter your shape, fitness or flexibility. We can't change a lot of things in life but we can change how we approach each moment so don't let any preconceived notions about yoga hold you back from joining a class.
